THE DEVIL YOU KNOW by Mike Carey
OVERVIEW: Felix Castor is a freelance exorcist, andLondon is his stamping ground. It may seem like a good ghostbuster can charge what he likes and enjoy a hell of a lifestyle--but theres a risk: Sooner or later hes going to take on a spirit thats too strong for him. While trying to back out of this ill-conceived career, Castor accepts a seemingly simple ghost-hunting case at a museum in the shadowy heart ofLondon-- just to pay the bills, you understand. But what should have been a perfectly straightforward exorcism is rapidly turning into the Who Can Kill Castor First Show, with demons and ghosts all keen to claim the big prize. Thats OK: Castor knows how to deal with the dead. Its the living who piss him off...
